Recommended Reading: Way to Go, Ryo!
I enjoyed reading Golf Girl's account of how 22-year-old Ryo Ishikawa won his PGA Tour card for 2014 via what Geoff Shackelford has been calling the WTF. I was definitely one of those people she refers to who were hoping Ryo-kun would make as big an immediate impact over here as Rory and Rickie, but even though he's struggled with his game for a while and been overtaken by Hideki Matsuyama of late, I was pretty impressed with what I saw of him on PGA Championship Friday at Oak Hill. So I'm not at all surprised he'll be back in the big leagues next year. I second GG's hope that he'll come back strong in 2014!
